Interurbans to the Loop by Robert P. OlmstedOn January 21, 1963 the Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railway ceased its scheduled operations, and the last heavily traveled truly interurban railroad passed from the scene. Continuing operations during the sixties, however, is the Chicago South Shore and South bend Railroad. The South Shore line is an interurban, and yet not one, to which anyone who has witnessed the 800 class freight motors with a long drag or seen the six and eight car commuter trains will attest. The South Shore combines the unique qualities of a heavy duty electric mainline railroad with the flavor on an interurban past.
Loads of black and white pictures. Book is in good condition. The pages have only very light yellowing and are crisp and clean. The dust jacket is protected by a plastic book cover and has taken the brunt of handling and shelf wear over the years. So it has a lot of scuffing. Despite having a plastic cover, the dust jacket does have some wear and tear. There is pitting along the edges of the spine and a tear on the top. Put a new plastic cover on it and it will look great again. Shipping included!This sale benefits the pandemic battered Pacific Railroad Museum that is operated by the Pacific Railroad Society a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation. Thanx for looking!
